Emergency Room Medicine
The Emergency Care Centers at the Brunswick and Camden campuses are staffed around the clock with highly-qualified physicians and other medical professionals and have access to state-of-the-art equipment, to ensure the highest quality of patient care. The Camden Campus is equipped with special hazardous material (HAZMAT) decontamination capabilities, with a quarantine area separate from patient treatment rooms.
Bedside registration is provided, which allows us to treat patients more efficiently. By eliminating lengthy paperwork, we see patients sooner, shortening patient stays. It also maximizes comfort, since patients can complete their registration from their bed with their family and loved ones nearby.
The Emergency Care Centers utilize a triage system to help prioritize patients who require immediate or lifesaving care and treatment over those patients arriving with less serious injuries or illnesses. It is our goal to have everyone seen by a provider within a timely manner, but several factors may impact the wait times. Some of the reasons include: a high number of patients arriving at the same time, ambulance patients, seriously injured or ill patients who require numerous tests or procedures, and patients who need to be admitted to the hospital. We highly recommend that patients with minor injuries or illnesses utilize one of our Immediate Care Centers to help decrease the wait times.
